What’s up people. So i need some guidance i’m stuck. So here is my predicament: I’m currently losing weight, (Down to 243) I’ve gotten it down from around 260, I’m 6’1. I was this heavy due to football but i tore my meniscus (lateral left knee) had surgery in august of 2017 and now i don’t want to play football in uni anymore. ( just graduated high school taking year off). So due to the surgey it completely tanked my numbers so i’m pretty much starting from scratch. Since I’ve been cleared to finally start lifting weights I’ve been doing this https://www.t-nation.com/training/4-week-routine-for-coming-back-from-forced-layoffs and now I’ve finished it and just starting to get back to normal.
I wanted to do CT’s Athlete Lean Athlete Strong program as i feel its good for what i want to do (drop the fat and build some muscle well doing it) but its based off of maxes and I’m not at all ready to test nor do i think that i’d get the benefit out of it that i would if i was 1000%. So finally heres my question, what program would you guys recommend, that will allow me to progress in my weight loss but also build the strength back. Oh just a Fyi for cardio I’ve been using the pool at goodlife as it allows me to do some cardio thats easy on the knee, but its still effective. Idk if that’s relevant but i thought i’d include it.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, if you need any more info i can gladly give it i tried to keep this as short as possible.
